In 1974, a beautiful, talented and headstrong young starlet got her big break on The Tonight Show, launching a decades-long career as the most glamorous pig in the world. And now, finally, there’s a podcast devoted to telling her amazing story — The Fantastic Miss Piggy Podcast!

This labor of love is a history, an analysis and a celebration of Miss Piggy as a pop culture phenomenon, created by her devoted fan, Tough Pigs founder Danny Horn. This first episode is a solo Danny effort, as he delves into a crucial mystery: Is Miss Piggy’s name really “Piggy Lee”?

Coming up in the following weeks, Danny will be joined by Tough Pigs favorites as well as incredible special guests like Bonnie Erickson, Calista Hendrickson, Craig Shemin, Brian Jay Jones and more, as we discuss everything there is to know about this fascinating, fictional femme fatale.

Is this too much fuss to make about a single Muppet character? Absolutely! But where Miss Piggy is concerned, “too far” is actually the appropriate amount of far. Join Danny as he begins this love story for the ages. Kissy-kissy, and welcome to the show!
